The South Carolina Wife...

Three men were sitting together bragging about how they had given their new wives duties.

The first man had married a woman from Michigan. And he told her that she was going to do the dishes and the house cleaning. It took a couple of days but on the third day, he came home to see a clean house and dishes washed and put away.

The second man had married a woman from Illinois. He had given his wife orders that she was to do all the cleaning, dishes, and the cooking. The first day he didn't see any results, but the second day he saw it was better. By the third day, he saw his house was clean, the dishes were done, and there was a huge dinner on the table.

The third man had married a beautiful girl from South Carolina. He told her that her duties were to keep the house cleaned, dishes washed, lawn mowed, laundry washed, and have hot meals on the table 3 times a day. He said the first day he didn't see anything. The second day he didn't see anything. But by the third day some of the swelling had gone down and he could see a little out of his left eye....enough to fix himself a sandwich and load the dishwasher.

Let that be a lesson to ya!

Newlywed sent me this and I laughed out loud! That sounds like our sweet Carolina Belles...Beware...Kinda like poison dart frogs ... Beauty and color are natures way of saying: Danger, Stay Away...We warned ya...
